Quirky looks, good engine and lots of space!


Nothing yet, but we only got it yesterday.

General Comments:

Great little supermini. Although it has been on sale in other parts of the word for as long as five years, it has only just reached Australia. They have only brought one here; the 1.4 five door with automatic. That suited my mum fine fine though. Even though it's a 1.4, she seems to have trouble staying under 60, and the cabin is very spacious.

The back seats, even when the front ones are all the way back, are still very spacious.

I am not sure on the looks but my mum loves it.

The boot could have been bigger, and the dashboard could have been classier, but it'll do.

Standard features are excellent - we didn't need to order any extras. We did go for the City Collection package though, which gives us 4 more airbags, alloys and a six stacker CD player.

Wouldn't recommend it to a petrol head, but if you live in the city or just want a really economical car, I would recommend it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I was just wondering how the Micra is going after four years?
